Interesting... I can't quite understand why they show so many photos but don't bother to include underside photos. Impossible to tell how it was mated. Also difficult to understand how one puts a different body on a unibody car.

Would be interested whether that VIN is the Milano VIN provided in the listing or if there's a GTV VIN plate. Usually the VIN plates would come with the body, but they are selling it as an 1988 Milano. Becomes more valuable if it's a GTV instead of a Milano for registration purposes, and may get you out of emissions requirements in some places.

Yea, the seller isn't doing himself any favors by providing such scant photographic or written information. The ebay description reads in part: The project comes with all the trim, light, bumpers and glass. I would recommend a donor alfa (3.0l Alfa milano)to complete the mechanicals and interior, the project will need a motor, transmission and interior seats, dashboard and a wiring harness. You have to wonder what the back story is - was the shop selling this project commissioned to build it for a client who then ran out of money or lost interest?

Registering and smogging it here in California could be a challenge if it's titled as an '88.

They won't show the underside because the stitches have not been pulled out yet.
